UPDATE: Location has been changed to Islet Lake due to low water levels at Hastings Lake. The launch is about 100 m from the parking lot. Bring wheels if you have them.
Directions: To get to Islet Lake, take Wye Road east from Sherwood Park. Follow it as it becomes Highway 630. You will pass Cooking Lake. Eventually you will see signs for Islet Lake Estates and Islet Lake Drive. DO NOT take this road. Continue just a bit further to RR200. This is where Hwy 630 bends due south and is about 36 km from Highway 21. Turn north (left) on RR200 and follow it to the end. There you will find Islet Lake picnic area.
